Doctor's Orders #4

Try Stevia instead of sugar.

Hem. Haw. Wheedle.

It's not like I use a lot of sugar during the day. I use two teaspoons in my cereal in the morning. A total of thirty calories. Whoo whee. But the doctor wants me to try to cut calories where I can. Grumble grumble.

I was resistant at first because I don't like chemical sugar substitutes but my friend told me it's from a plant. She also sent me a sample which I've had for a couple weeks. I'm still stalling. I'm going to have to try it at least once before my doctor's appointment on the 15th. So, I'll get to it eventually.

  1. You do have another option, omit the sweetener all together! Your taste buds will adapt and after a bit you will find added sugar makes things too sweet. Sugar (or sweetner) always made me want to eat more, I'm better off leaving it out altogether.

    I tried Truvia brand stevia and it's really good ... pricey but good.
